I guess it's one of the landmarks that you've got to see when traveling to Seoul. Unfortunately it was cloudy so we couldn't totally appreciate the view. We only had two days. We took the cable car up the hill to the base of the tower and walked down (30*C) which was quite nice (even though we paid for round... More

I was there in September 2014, even though I haven't been to the top of the tower yet but the atmosphere surrounding the tower was fabulous. My friend and I took a bus from the station, I forgot the name already, and left the bus at the N-tower station. It is an up-hill street which you have to walk till... More

I love a view and this is the best in Seoul. A 360 degree breathtaking view overlooking the city of Seoul. Well worth the visit. Take a tour bus and hike up the walk way or park and ride the tram. Both are enjoyable and get you to the same spot! Bring a lock or if you've forgotten, purchase one... More

A visit to Seoul Tower and Namsan Park is highly recommended. We also had a good Korean lunch at the restaurant in the Tower. Very nice view!

Visited this some time back in February, super cold and SUPER long queues forming the bottom of the hill. But it's worth all the wait. You get to view entire of Seoul and it's just simply amazing!

A bit of a walk up to the tower but all worth it once you're there. The view of Seoul is breathtaking from the tower.

i like night view more than day view. to be honest air in seoul is not the best. so you might have to check sky before decide to go there. going up hill by walk can be challenging. i usually take cable car to go up and step down. but if you are wearing hills, probably not a good idea.

Cant see what earlier people keep complaining about. We walked to the top from myeong dong station. Took about 30-40 min up. Yes is was a warm day, thats why we used extra long time on the way up. Get in shape people.

One of the best things to do in SK! Finding the cable car station that takes you up the mountain was no problem, you can walk up, but that's a tad ambitious. There are lots of things to do even before you head up the tower, restaurants, some stores and of course you can leave your mark with a padlock.... More

We took the rail car to the top to view the tower but seeing the locals taking the hike up the stairs made me vow to work for my view the next time around. My toddler especially liked the candy shop and optical illusion museums up top.
